Just like you, we're all tone-geeks here at TC. We spend hours on end chasing those elusive perfect tones, and listen to records non-stop to decipher the sonic sorcery of our heroes. So in order to get a step closer to the perfect tone, we decided to interview the guys that know tone better than anybody else, and ask them what their take on gear and tone is and try to get to know them a little better.
